Host Jerrod Carmichael returned from a commercial break holding three Golden Globe trophies and made a joke that made the audience gasp.

"I have a pitch, I think maybe we take these three things and exchange them for the safe return of Shelly Miscavige," Carmichael said.

Miscavige is the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige.

Carmichael held the trophies because Tom Cruise, a member of the Church of Scientology, returned his three Golden Globes in 2021 amid the Hollywood Foreign Press Association controversy.

Globes' pianist Chloe Flower, who has composed music for Misty Copeland and Kevin Hart among others, was blamed by some stars for the walk-off music that was played to shorten their speeches.

But she wasn't responsible, posting on Twitter that she would not interrupt speakers.

She wrote: "I would never play piano over people’s speeches!! I’m only playing when you see me on camera!"

While accepting awards, Michelle Yeoh of "Everything Everywhere All at Once" told the person responsible for playing her off that she could "beat" them up, while "Banshees of Inisherin" star Colin Farrell said: "You can forget that piano."

Editor's note: Story has been updated to reflect Flower's post that she wasn't playing the music that interrupted the speakers.

The Golden Globes so far: 5 of the opening 7 awards went to people of color

From CNN's Brian Lowry

Five of the opening seven awards to performers went to people of color, including Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan for the sci-fi comedy “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” and Angela Bassett for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the Marvel sequel. Both films were broadly popular, as opposed to more narrowly skewed art-house fare.

Honored for his comeback role after a long acting hiatus, Quan expressed gratitude to Steven Spielberg, who cast him as a child in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” a nominee this year for directing his autobiographical movie “The Fabelmans.” Bassett spoke of the late Chadwick Boseman, and how the movies were part of his legacy.

Quinta Brunson and Tyler James Williams were also recognized for the ABC sitcom “Abbott Elementary,” the rare series on a broadcast network to make inroads in the awards arena.

Consisting of international journalists, the HFPA has traditionally favored European talent. Colin Farrell won best actor in a musical or comedy for “The Banshees of Inisherin.”

When Golden Globes producers attempted to play Michelle Yeoh off with music, she wasn't having it.

"Shut up please, I can beat you up, I'm serious," she said while being played off.

Yeoh went on to complete her full speech, the first one to beat the music.

So far she's been the only one who has beat the piano, but not the only one to get sassy with the show's producers.

"You can forget that piano," Colin Farrell said during his acceptance speech.

"You can at least play 'Suspicious Minds' or something," Austin Butler said during his speech.

Other victims of the "wrap it up" piano Tuesday included M. M. Keeravani, Jeremy Allen White, Quinta Brunson and the cast of "Abbott Elementary," Paul Walter Hauser, Jennifer Coolidge and Mike White.

Actress Michelle Yeoh reflected on an early encounter when she first came to Hollywood, California.

"I remember when I first came to Hollywood, it was a dream come true until I came here ... Someone said to me: 'You speak English?' And then I said: 'Yeah, the flight here was about 13 hours long so I learned," Yeoh recalled during her acceptance speech for best actress in a comedy or musical motion picture.
